  1. Amarcord operations like this one should be enforced by law: a masterpiece of videogame history is proposed again with new graphics and a new style. All has remained as we remembered, with its ironic strength and its perfection. Simply a myth.

    An absolute joy to play once more. [Oct 2010, p.80]
  3. If you haven't played this game when it first came out a long time ago , you should go and buy it right now. And if you have, you should go and buy it right now. It's the best adventure game of all time, period.
  4. PC Gamer UK

    Stunning graphics and excellent voice acting. [Sept 2010, p.86]
  5. It's an excellent chance to relive the heady days of the point-and-click adventure, where games were written with intelligence, humour and precision rather than large explosions and endless DLC.
  6. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge is a great addition to your downloadable library. Whether you're an old adventure gamer looking to scratch a nostalgic itch or a shellshocked shooter fan looking for a whimsical break from the fray, this game's meager entry fee is well worth it.
  7. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge is everything fans of the series would expect from a high-definition remake.

The story is engaging and hilarious, the characters are all fascinating, the music is catchy and it looks beautiful. The puzzles remain hard but the introduction of a hint system really helps you when you are in trouble and the ability to swap to classic view is a real treat. The added voice acting and how you are now able to use them in the classic view is also a welcome edition. A must buy. Expand

    The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition was a nice remake of a great game. LeChuck's Revenge manages to make even better. Graphics,The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition was a nice remake of a great game. LeChuck's Revenge manages to make even better. Graphics, interface, music, almost everything is better in this remake of the second episode in the Monkey Island series. Add a hilarious storyline to this and you get one of the greatest adventure titles in video game history, at least in my opinion. This game isn't the slightest bit serious, and people who whine about it should gather more information before blindly buying the game just because it has good reviews. LucasArts games have always been hilarious, with lots of humor, unlikely situations and crazy puzzles. But this is the reason why LucasArts games worked so well and are now considered as classics. And this remake is no exception. Expand

The puzzles are some of the most memorable of all adventure games, the atmosphere both moody and funny, the story is good and the characters are fantastic. Guybrush Threepwood would perhaps be my favourite video game character that this remake has enhanced everything thats great about him. This sequel certainly has some weird moments, and some strange decisions were made to the direction of the story, it also has probably one of the most unexpected and awkward endings to a game for good and for bad. But all in all this undoubtable its a true and solid remake. HIGHLY recommended to intelligent gamers. Expand

It is so childish and full of lame tasks. The humor that gets tossed into the story line is very elementary and perfect for a very young child, but I'm not a young child. I can't believe the ratings it has received (a 9.2 user score???) because I was so bored and so frustrated by playing it, I wished I could have returned it. I have played many games for years with this being the lowest on the list. It is so linear that I was bored in about 15 minutes. The puzzles should drive anyone mad because they are very silly. This might be good for a child between the ages of 8-10, but other than that it is a complete waste of time. I bought the game because it was rated so highly. ONLY buy this game if you are under 10 and like cartoons with puzzles and corny jokes or if you like really old fashioned games that had no excitement. The biggest thrill I received was when I uninstalled it. Thumbs down for LucasArts and Monkey Island. Expand
